CodeRED is an emergency notification service that allows emergency officials to notify residents and businesses by telephone, cell phone, text message and e-mail regarding time-sensitive general and emergency notifications. Only authorized officials have access to the CodeRED system.
This system is an enhancement to existing means of communication and is meant to supplement current or past systems used for mass notification.
The CodeRED database currently contains limited information. No resident should assume that their information is in the system. Residents and businesses are encouraged to register for emergency notification alerts on the City of Hot Springs website at www.cityhs.net by clicking on the CodeRED button. When registering, you may contribute additional information if you wish, such as mobile phone numbers, work telephone lines and alternate emergency contact information. Those without internet access can sign-up using computer terminals at the Garland County Library or by calling (501) 321-6743 for assistance. All contact information provided remains private and is only used for emergency notification purposes.

*Disclaimer, for businesses in the county, some notifications will not be available.
When an individual registers for CodeRED, they may submit up to four (4) more numbers for the same address.

Make sure you have at least one working corded telephone – and be sure to turn the ringer on. The CodeRED sign-up form allows you to indicate both a primary and alternate phone number.
